A blog created to inspire and motivate myself to enjoy studying.
The simple fact is that people who achieve excellence in their fields didn’t just have a dream. They got up at 4:00 am to practice on parallel bars or had to forgo other desirable activities and paths in order to get in six hours of violin practice a day, or stayed off several million absurd writing advice blogs with their overheated little cliques that dispense useless regurgitated maxims and empty praise and decide to actually confront their own thoughts on a page. Or they read Beowulf and Dante carefully and deeply when they didn’t see any point, since all they were interested in was Sylvia Plath, because someone of more experience and wisdom told them to do so. I don’t know whether we’re overly lazy, stupid, or childish these days. But the idea of preparing oneself for excellence has somehow disappeared. So – my advice to dreamers: Don’t just follow your dreams. Earn them. Do what it takes to achieve it. Work for it. Don’t just sit there and dream because if you do, it will never, ever be yours.

pre-study chill with #markiplier :)

My mindset changed quite unexpectedly since the session last week.

This is what heaven looks like

Studybreaks are the best. Here’s to more positivity.

"Forgive yourself for your mistakes. Distressed wood is valued for its scars, the evidence of its individuality. You are marked, perhaps scarred as well, but you have survived. Wear your scars as badges of lessons learned and growth earned."
Guys I just want you to know


That it’s okay if u can’t do 10 hours of work

It’s okay if everyone else seems better than u

U don’t have to be like everyone

Just 10 mins is enough

As long as you’re doing something

It’s good

You’re good.

My life at 12:36AM.


it’s ok if you can’t manage five hours of work like everyone else seems to

it’s not about how much you do, it’s about how well you do it

sitting staring at your books for an hour won’t help you

you will only get more stressed

do what you can, even if that’s just five minutes a day
